Such is my life right now...full of chaos and randomness. So why would my blog be any different? :)
Last week I got on the registry to be a bone marrow donor. I'm very excited! Several years ago I looked into it, but it was going to cost me close to $100 to get registered. Then last week, an email was sent out at work saying an associate was looking for a donor, so the company would have a drive and pay for everyone's registration fees. Hey, I figure that's the least they can do for laying me off.

And I also let them pay for my flu shot.
And I'm long overdue thanking these ladies for these awards. I've been out of touch lately and am sorry I haven't done this sooner. Please know they are very much appreciated!
AJ gave me this one
And Mandi gave me this one.
Thanks girls! I've really enjoyed getting to know these two fellow bloggers. Both are very sweet. I enjoy reading about their lives, decorating triumphs and even about Zac Efron (even though I have no idea who he is, but apparently AJ lusts for him). :)
I'm a list person. I love lists and post-its. I use them for everything. Right now I've been working on a list of projects that I want to work on while I'm on hiatus from the corporate world.
There was a shoe sample sale at work today. I wasn't going to go. And I didn't. Until one of my friends came back with a cute pair of boots for me (and a bag of about 10 pairs of shoes for herself). So I decided to go up. Heck, the shoes were only $3 each pair. Never mind my shoe obsession. Never mind that I have about 100+ pairs of shoes. Well, maybe not anymore. A few months back I purged. But shoes are something I can always use. And this was my last sample sale ever (sniff, sniff).
It's not bad having a shoe obsession, is it? Shoes are put to good use, unlike some things that are just put up in a closet, never to be seen again. And, perhaps I can wear the two dressy pair on interviews. We'll see.
The silver ones intrigue me. On, they are very dressy and elegant. Off, they are reminiscent of stripper shoes. Maybe hubs will like those. ;)
Been busy copying over files from my hard drive at work to my thumb drive. Over the years, I've saved lots of pics and links of crafts, family, etc., and I don't want to lose them.
That took a long time. Who'd have thought?
Tomorrow I need to copy over .pdf versions of my samples for future jobs.
If you don't have a thumb drive, go get one. They are priceless. 4.0 gigs for $10. Great for backing up your computer, too.
Now I'm going to retreat to my flannel jammies. The ones with the dachshunds in santa hats. Tres chic.
